For more than 100 years, 4-H has been at the forefront of teaching young people about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). NYSD is the premier national rallying event for year-round 4-H STEM programming, bringing together youth, volunteers and educators from the nation’s 111 land-grant colleges and universities to simultaneously complete the National Science Experiment.
Currently, more than five million young people across the nation participate in 4-H STEM programming in topics as varied as robotics, agricultural science, rocketry, wind power, environmental science and alternative energy. The 2014 National Science Experiment will explore the field of aerospace engineering. Check back for updates and announcements as we get ready for NYSD 2014!
